I can't believe how overrated Juicy Tubes are - at least judging from the number of varieties available in the market - compared to so many good lip glosses that no-one notices.
Someone gave me this as a present a few years ago and I was excited, probably do to the media hype. But I was really disappointed, particularly with the stickiness - what happens is that you apply (I use it without anything else on my lips, perhaps I should try some balm first) and it smells and tastes great, looks really glossy for some time, but then your lips get dry after a while. It's too strong, as if my lips can't breathe beneath the gloss.
for all the hype there is on this lipgloss , it's very tacky and hard to even bother kissing with !! very thick , quite gloopy and i don't like the glitter bits in it . a lovely smell and taste though so hard not to want to lick / eat it off right away .
Another excellent Juicy Tube! Framboise is a very pale red with tiny multi-colored glitters. Like most JT's it is not very pigmented. However, I love the pale red-ish color. Great for everyday wear. Very pretty indeed! I love the scent and the packaging. Pretty good lasting power. The only downside is that all JT's are a bit sticky. However, that is not a big problem for me.
I would definitely repurchase! I love my JT's. continued >>
Smells and tastes gorgeous, pretty colour, but yeah, it's super sticky and gloopy. Shame, because otherwise it has the making of everything I want in a gloss. But like others have said, this is strictly for days/nights out when kisses are not on the agenda.
As i remember well, Lancome was the first brand who came with a gloss in a tube with a fruit fragrance and many other brand followed this trend. At that time, a totally loved this gloss, the structure, the shine and te fragrance. Nowadays, with so many other fruitglosses, i think this one is quite average. The structure is very sticky (dont kiss anyone with this gloss!!) and the shade is too transparant. The framboise smell is still lovely, although i tend to lick the gloss of my lips because of this.
I got real disappointed when I bought this. I absolutely LOVE JT but this looked a lot better in the store than it did on my lips. First of all, I hate the smell. The shade is okay, but it`s too..colourful. Hard to explain, but it`s not just pink, it`s everything. Yuck.
Think its an alright lip gloss, got this in a gift set with a perfume so didn't pick it because of its colour. Is quite a reddy pink colour in the tube but does appear clear with only a tinge of red when its on, which I don't really mind.
Does last quite a while but think it is a bit too much like glue when on lips. Gave the lip gloss 4 but I wouldn't buy again as I think there is cheaper lip glosses that are better.
I'm so glad i got it in a swap so i didn't waste any money on it!It is like those lip glosses that come free with teen magazines. It is SUPER sticky and the colours and the sparkles show up nothing lips.People say it tastes delicious but it tastes nothing on me somehow.It is absolutely rubbish!
I get the unnerving feeling that I'm reviewing a different product.
I got this in a swap (an extra! whoo!) instead of buying it, so while my other juicy tubes say Made In France this says NY/Montreal.
It goes on a pretty clear colour with a slight pink tinge and I can see little (i think) multicoloured glitters in the tube, but they're very subtle and nonchunky on my lips, unlike snowgirl lipglass etc. A sort of sophisticated glitter.
It's really rather pretty and is pleasantly scented like most other jts.
If I ever run out of clear lipgloss with glitter (haha!) I would select to buy this again.
